quantmod error in getSymbols(): download failed

Hi everyone!I am new to R community and today I have a question with 'quantmod' package. I run the following code, but shows a warning message.

getSymbols("AAPL",from = "2008-01-01",to = "2019-12-31")

It seems R can not connect to Yahoo. But, I can actually log to the website https://finance.yahoo.com/. Can anyone tell me what the problem is?

quantmod is at the mercy of yahoo changing their api etc, their most recent 'fix' for changes came with most recent cran version 0.4.20 apparently

Hi Nirgrahamuk,

I checked the version of quantmod and it shows ‘0.4.20’. It seems this is the newest version?
